About Elite

Elite is a Canadian seed company that prides itself on delivering varieties tailored to the specific needs of farmers across Canada.

Elite’s unwavering commitment to early-maturing markets is demonstrated through continued investments in crop production research, plant breeding and crop variety development. Elite’s corn hybrids and early maturity soybeans are developed and evaluated at the Elite Research Farm in Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec, as well as satellite testing locations in Western Canada. Elite has a full soybean breeding program with their own genetic material and is dedicated to developing soybeans with maturities to satisfy growers in all Canadian regions. Proof of this comes with a major expansion into Manitoba, which allows for additional private testing sites, more crosses directed toward early adaptation, additional disease screening and more nursery selection plots.
